Product Description

The Apple In-ear Headphones with remote and mic allows you to select your favorite track or video, adjust volume, and record voice memos (on selected Ipods). Each earpiece contains two separate high-performance drivers - a woofer and a tweeter - resulting in rich, detailed, and accurate sound reproduction and amazing bass response for all types of music. Choose from three sizes of soft, silicone ear tips for a comfortable, stable fit. When inserted in your ear, they create a seal that blocks outside noise so you can get the most from your music. The control capsule located on the cable of the right earpiece includes a microphone and three buttons. It lets you control the volume, music, video playbacks and record voice memos on supported Ipod models. So put on a pair of Apple In-ear Headphones and rediscover your music.

Customer Reviews:

  • Really Good
    I bought these for my son. He has an apple itouch and says they work "Really Good".He likes the control switch on the cord and the mic as well....more info
  • Not bad
    The headphones aren't bad, but if I had the choice of spending a comparable amount on Bose or some other in ear headphone, I would. The only problem with that plan is that these seem to be the only earbuds with a mic that works with the iPhone.

    A big improvement over the factory earbuds, but should be about $20 cheaper....more info
  • Good while it lasts
    I used this with my 1st Gen iPod touch for about two months before writing this review.

    WARNING to potential buyers, the remote capabilities are NOT supported on the 1st gen touch.

    Sound: The sound is good. As good as other premium earbuds costing more and less. Sound is very subjective, but if you get a good seal with the buds in your ears you'll get good tight (not exaggerated) bass response and clean (not harsh) high end. I listened to all types of music and spoken material, and all performed really well. Rock was tight with good kick drum and clear guitars. Classical exposed subtle room tones and delicate instrumentation. Podcasts came through with good presence and no harsh sibilance.

    Build: This is where these phones suffer. If you are over 6' tall and keep your iPod in your pants while you listen prepare to keep your head from sudden movements. The cord is too short to allow your head to freely move without starting to pull the buds from your ears.
    Additionally these headphones are no longer useful to me as the right channel is now blown. I have very sensitive ears to loud noises, and never had my iPod above the 5/8 volume mark even when I was getting my rock on. Apparently that is too much for these to handle.

    So be careful! These are good while they last, if you are shorter than 6'.
    But Apple who is normally associated with good quality dropped the ball on this one.

  • Exceptional IEM
    I am a long time audiophile and dedicated headphone/earphone buff. I currently own the top line `phones from most of the major manufacturers including Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, Sony, Etymotic, AKG, AT, etc. I state this only in an effort to establish my bona fides and not to put down the views any other reviewer. This said, let me state unequivocally that I consider these earphones to be an excellent value. Contrary to the previous review, the bass response is both plentiful and very well balanced. However, as with all in-ear-monitors, the seal between the silicone tip and the ear canal is all important. No seal, no bass--it's that simple. These shouldn't be confused with Apple's other, cheaper in-ear model. These are dual driver earphones and offer considerably higher fidelity than most single driver designs. Despite being much cheaper than most other maker's dual driver models, they are the equal of earphones costing twice as much or more. To compare them to iPod earbuds is absolutely ludicrous. Very highly recommended....more info
